Two teams with identical points in the table - Kings XI Punjab and Sunrisers Hyderabad will cross paths at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium this Saturday evening. While Sunrisers Hyderabad was in a much better position a few matches back, things have gone downhill for them. On the other hand, Kings XI Punjab have won each of their last three and re-kindled their title hopes. With both the teams in dire straits, the players will play out of their skins - making this match with-watching.
To make your Saturday even more interesting, I have handpicked the top three winning player bets for you and listed them below. Just go through my analysis and invest strategically to become richer by the end of the day.
Even if he has scored just four runs in the last match, we cannot just ignore him. David Warner has scored a total of 335 runs in 10 matches this season, at a rate of 37.22 runs per innings, having registered at least 26 runs in seven of those matches. In the last five matches, his scores were - 4, 47 n.o, 9 48, 52, having amassed 160 runs, at a rate of 40 runs per innings, having crossed the 25-run mark in three of the above-mentioned matches.
In the last five matches against Kings XI Punjab, the southpaw has registered scores of 52, 81, 70 n.o, 51, 70 n.o, having racked up 324 runs, scoring at a rate of 108 runs per innings, which is insane. Overall, in 18 matches against Kings XI Punjab, the batsman has mustered a total of 871 runs, averaging 54.44 runs per innings. Lastly, he sports an average of 42.72 runs per innings in the 136 IPL matches he has played so far, which makes the outcome more obvious. What are you waiting for? Just place your bets.
The Indian International has played a great supporting act to KL Rahul at the top of the order and he has scored ample of runs too, which brings us to this bet. In the 10 matches he has played so far, the right hander has scored a total of 39 boundaries, at a rate of 3.9 hits per innings, having registered at least 3 in seven of those matches. In the last four matches, the right-hander has hit a total of 12 boundaries, hitting at a rate of 3 boundaries per match, which is impressive.
Dubai has been a special ground for the opener, with him registering high scores in the first three matches of this tournament, having struck 14 boundaries, at a rate of almost 5 hit per match. Even though he had disappointing outings in the next three matches, we are expecting him to deliver in the upcoming one, with the affair potentially do-or-die for them. With experience under his belt, we are expecting him to hit at least 3 boundaries in the upcoming match. We should definitely invest money on this bet, with high odds of 1.72 on offer.
This looks like a pretty safe bet, with KL Rahul, the best batsman in the IPL so far, needing just 1 six to win us some easy cash. In the last four matches, he has hit a total of 9 sixes, at a rate of 2.25 hits per match, having struck at least one in three of those matches. Overall, in 10 matches played this season, the right-hander has hit a total of 19 sixes (third in the list), striking almost two hits on an average, with him hitting 1 in seven of those matches, which shows how good he has been till now.
Having played six matches at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium so far, Rahul has hit a total of 13 sixes (1, 7, 1, 0, 3, 1), averaging 2.16 hits per innings, having cleared the ropes at least once in four of those matches. In 141 T20s played so far, the batsman has hit a total of 186 sixes, at a rate of 1.31 hits per innings, which also keeps us safe regarding this deal. This is a sure-shot bet and we should not think twice before investing money for this one.
